The Grenada Chocolate Company produces single origin 'tree-to-bar' chocolate in small batches on the tiny island of Grenada.
Rare Trinitario cocoa beans are grown by members of the Grenada Organic Cocoa Farmers' Cooperative, which includes our own Grococo farm.
The cocoa trees grow on small farms in the rainforest, protected by nutmeg, banana and mango trees. Harvesting is done year-round as the cocoa pods are ready, and the beans go up the hill to the Grenada Chocolate Company’s small solar-powered factory to be made into chocolate.
Cocoa beans are often sold in bulk and exported for processing and by making chocolate bars, which have a much higher value than beans alone, on the island, the Grenada Chocolate company ensures that maximum value is retained by the community that grows and makes the chocolate. This truly is fairly traded, ethical chocolate.
This 60% dark chocolate bar is sweet and intensely fruity and scattered with crunchy roasted cocoa nibs.
